Harlot of Babylon According to Irvin Baxter; Trinity and Oneness, Part 2by Karl Kemp
We discuss some of Irvin Baxter's wrong statements, like there wasn't any baptizing in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit until after the Council of Nicea in AD 325. We also discuss the fact that the primary thing that caused many of the Pentecostals to accept the oneness (one Person) viewpoint and break away from the Assemblies of God (which had just been organized in 1914) in 1916 was the topic of water baptism in the name of Jesus in the book of Acts.
What to Look Out forby Sue Darling
We all need a miracle. A great many times we don't realise it is in our power because all new born again Christians can call on the name of Jesus. We all major in different gifts but, we all have most of them in vary forms I believe and one of them is self-deliverance. Having this gift changes your life.

Why I Feel the Need to Figure Things Outby stephanie reck
I am notorious for trying to figure out an outcome of a situation before it happens. I will come up with all the possible scenarios, and then analyze each one. I had absolutely no idea why I did this. I have come to realize that I am trying to control what may happen in my life. As if, right?

It's Not Just Entertainmentby Anthony Weber
I find myself increasingly annoyed with the comment, "It's just entertainment. You're over thinking it!" Perhaps, but every song is a sermon. Every movie has a message. It's well worth asking if we should applaud or cringe at what we see reflected, and if we like what our stories are making of us.
"America's Blessings: How Religion Benefits Everyone, Including Atheists"by Anthony Weber
Christopher Hitchens claimed religion poisoned everything; Dawkins has compared a religious upbringing to child abuse. Are they right? Are religious groups really such a threat that these kinds of measures should be taken? Sociologist Rodney Stark draws from an impressive range of studies to make the case that the opposite is true. Religion specifically evangelicalism helps everything it touches to flourish.
No Shortcuts: The Building of Christian Characterby Anthony Weber
There is no escaping the Godly practice of doing the next thing: Being faithful in the walk of life, in little things when there is no apparent inspiration, no applause, no crowd, no obvious, immediate payoff to myself.

The Resurrection of Jesus and Probabilityby Max Aplin
There are those who argue that Jesus did not rise from the dead by appealing to probability. They claim that because we have such widespread experience of people who die remaining dead, the probability that Jesus rose from the dead has to be extremely small. In fact, this wrongly assumes that arguing from probability carries a fixed amount of weight regardless of what evidence there might be supporting the resurrection. Tangible evidence for Jesus' resurrection severely weakens the argument from probability.
Growing Painsby Sue Darling

The Patience of Christby Susan Ferguson

Who are the Real Myth-Makers of History?by Toni Babcock
Why would the apostles, eye witnesses of Jesus Christ and his miracles; men who were singularly subject to stoning, whipping, imprisonments, torture and death, be happy to go to their graves touting a myth?

Breaking Free From Addictionby stephanie reck
Addictions come in many forms, such as, alcohol, drugs, food, sex, gambling, and pornography. Addiction happens when we have a compulsive, repetitive desire for a certain thing and we act on the impulse. Nothing else will do until the craving we are after is fulfilled. Have you ever noticed how people go to great lengths to obtain their addiction? Why, you might ask? Every time we fulfill that desire for our addiction it changes pathways in our brain for pleasure

What Is the Good News of the Christian Message?by Max Aplin
At the heart of the Christian faith is a message of wonderfully good news to human beings. We have all insulted almighty God by committing sins, and in our natural state we are on track for everlasting punishment after death. But Jesus, the God-Man, died on the cross and rose again to make it possible for us to be forgiven. We receive this forgiveness by faith in Jesus. Genuine faith will always be accompanied by turning away from sins and by water baptism.

Embrace the Trialsby Rick King
Embrace the trials. That seems an odd thing to say doesn't it? When problems seem to come our tendency is to try escape or to run away from them as they are not comfortable at all. Yet, in the Lord there is a reason for them.
How do we enter into a Relationship with God?by Sue Darling

The Gospel According to Amaziahby Abby Kelly
We've been told that the Gospel must get from our head into our hearts, but I think it's more truthful that the Gospel must rule in both placesoccupy both head and heart simultaneously to do us any real good.
Dress Down and Dress Upby Alan Allegra
It is not the outward appearance but the inward heart that reveals the essence of a person, and that is what God sees (1 Samuel 16:7; Jeremiah 17:910). He cares not for wealth, status, rank, color, gender or any other distinction. To His eyes, man is man, woman is woman, and all are judged equally (Matthew 22:16).
Leave Jesus Out of Itby Alan Allegra
Many holidays are named after people. On Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, we honor MLK. On Columbus Day, we consider the discoverer of America. On Washington's Birthday, the Father of Our Country. On CHRISTmas, we celebrate . . . Santa Claus. Or Old Man Winter. Or Sam Walton. Or "X."
Why We Don't Like Disappointing Othersby stephanie reck
Since I was a little girl I always wanted to please the adults in my life, as I grew older that really did not change much. I do not like letting people down or having to tell anyone, "No." I fear that that person will get mad at me and think less than positive things about me. I have gotten better over the years of telling others, "No," but sometimes it still bothers me to tell someone," I am not able to do that at this time."

Filthy Ragsby Rochelle Arnold
There is nothing that compares to the presence of the Lord. When we seek Him in praise and worship or in our prayer closet, the realness and weightiness of the very awesome manifestation of Jesus is an incredible experience. Entering His gates with thanksgiving and expectancy seeking His face and His presence, is the most important part of our faith. The Lord's presence is able to change a situation in the blink of an eye; worship creates an environment where the Shekinah Glory or His manifest presence begins to saturate the atmosphere. Our very desire to have an intimate relationship with Jesus, draws Him near us.
